Sepia Portraits of White Tailed Deer


deerOne reason I keep posting is to share things I love. Recently I read that people will not protect nature until they love it, and they will not love it until they know it!

So again I share these magnificent animals. I hope people will want to protect them, which unfortunately is not simple. Deer are overcrowded in the park and this threatens their health. The park service is studying them to seek solutions. Deer are also threatened by motor vehicles, so please watch for them and slow down at dusk, which is a time that they are active and feeding along the roadside.
